Document how to run from a virtual USB storage in virt-manager from a USB image
Is there a plan to update the documentation of running Tails from a virtual USB storage in virt-manager (https://tails.boum.org/doc/advanced_topics/virtualization/virt-manager/index.en.html#index5h1)? The USB image can be used for this instead of using Tails Installer. The image must be increased to be at least 7200 MiB, I always do this with this command:
dd if=/dev/zero of=PATH_TO_TAILS.img conv=notrunc oflag=append bs=1000M count=6
FWIW one can get a simpler command line by using truncate.
- Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
- Subject changed from Update doc for running Tails from a virtual USB storage in virt-manager to Document how to run from a virtual USB storage in virt-manager from a USB image
Good catch! I didn't think about updating this section but it would be great.
Note that the current section still works and that this work was not initially budgeted for Sponsor_I. So I think we should drop the "Deliverable for" and make this a Low priority (and Starter) task.
Would the first step be to update the command line to use
truncate as proposed by intrigeri on #16006#note-14.
I'm fine with reviewing a branch after somebody else writes a draft.
